Rami Sayar is an engineering student in his final year of Computer Engineering at McGill University. He has been active in the fields of software engineering and design. While pursuing his studies, he has worked for hot startups in Silicon Valley and for Fortune 500 giants. Rami founded the Code Jam @ McGill, the university’s largest engineering competition, in order to improve training in his field. In 2012, he was awarded the Scarlet Key for student leadership and significant contributions to the McGill community.
Alongside his responsibilities at McGill University, Rami is working at a Montreal-based startup and consulting agency exploring new ideas at the intersection of design, collaboration and the real-time web. At the end of the day, Rami is prevented from sleeping by his curiosity for experimentation and his insistence on shipping high quality code.
Will the web ever be the same after the real-time technology explosion? This talk will formulate ideas and principles on how to collaborate, share knowledge and create artistic productions in this new technological environment. Technology may just be the impetus of a new wave of creative thought, expression and production. Get Futuristic.
